The sacred Alamo stands within the very heart of the business district of the city of San Antonio. It was erected in 1718 by the Franciscan Monks and was originally the Chapel of the Mission of San Antonio de Valera. It was within the gray stone walls of the quaint old Chapel, March 6 1836 that Travis , Barrett, Bowie, Crockett and 170 unsung heroes gave their lives in defense of Texas liberty.
If you have never visited and get the chance to see the Alamo I recommend it. They say it is one of the most haunted places in the USA. I did not see any ghosts on my visit but I did feel a sense of sadness and quiet. It was is one of the most eerie places I have ever visited.
